A Nigerian Soldier, with the name John Oden on Facebook, took to his page to offer praises to God moments ago as he left the hotbed of the Boko Haram war, in Maiduguri, Borno state after staying there for four years and four months.
Oden appreciated God for keeping him alive for his mother and wife that he is now returning home to.
Read his quite emotional post below,
